DALLAS (AP) — Hundreds of demonstrators have rallied outside a McKinney, Texas, elementary school in protest of a white police officer’s actions against a mostly black group of teens at a pool party.

Some who gathered in the Dallas suburb held signs Monday that included the phrases, “My skin color is not a crime,” and, “Don’t tread on our kids.”

A few dozen addressed the crowd through a bullhorn, including Derrick Golden, a pastor from McKinney who met earlier with the city’s police Chief Greg Conley.

He said Conley “responded appropriately” after the officer was seen in a video pushing a 15-year-old girl to the ground and pointing his gun at other teens. The officer is on administrative leave while the incident is investigated.

But Golden said officer David Eric Casebolt should be terminated because of the profanities he used and the fact that he brandished his gun.

The demonstrators marched a mile from the school to the Craig Ranch North Community Pool, where Friday’s incident occurred.

About a dozen counterprotesters held signs supporting police.

    Even the big black dude said those kids didn’t belong there. They broke in, caused trouble like the asses they are, the cried victim when they were treated like the trespassers they are. Start following the rules and you won’t have to worry about the police.

    From what I’ve read, this is something these kids do frequently. They use social media to meet up and crash private pools. One of the residents of the place told them to get lost, and as a result she was assaulted. That’s when the cops were called. Since the apartment complex is mostly white, the officer did the right thing targeting blacks who were there, because common sense dictates that if it’s a place that is mostly non-black, anyone there who is black are more than likely trespassing. The kids could have avoided this by going to a public pool in the first place instead of breaking the law.
